Step 1: Read a book
Step 2: Outline information about the book (info below)
Step 3: Make a VISUAL plan – How will you present your book? What images will you show? In what order? What words will you say or show on the screen? You need a plan – Use a StoryBoard handout to sketch out your plan (see tab 2 for ideas and tab 3 for how-to StoryBoard)
Step 4: Collect what you need – images, a song or two for your sound track, etc. – Save these to your documents folder AND back it up on your Google drive. (see tab 4)
Step 5: Edit it all together into a new video (see tab 6: MovieMaker Info)
What IS a Book Trailer?
A book trailer is like a movie preview, but for a book! It should be interesting to your audience (other teenagers) and the purpose of the video is to promote or “sell” your book to others. Why should people choose your book? What makes it worth reading?
